Some companies are dedicated to creating new business innovations. They only employ the best and smartest in the technical field and give them the task to find a more easy way to perform everyday business functions. Bringing new technology to established companies means that many changes need to be done. All staff members need to recognize and can adapt to any changes that can be done for their work design. Procedures and processes that have been set for some time can show their age. Changes and progress are always needed if the company hopes to follow the times and remain in business for years.
When a company is considering a new form of technology, they will have many factors to be taken into account. This includes how capable employees adjust to change, how much benefits will be accepted by the company to use technology, and whether the company has resources to resolve changes without obstacles or delays. This delay may be due to lack of funds or other reasons. Poor financial planning can be the destruction of any company, especially during the time of change.
If new technology threatens to affect employees in a negative way, there must be a positive influence to ward off that the negativity to make employees remain happy. Not satisfied, unhappy employees will not work with their full potential. They will not give themselves to the company fully, or trust their managers and company executives. Employees must have a high level of trust and respect the company itself and their managers to have the desire to put them all in their work.
Every employee is affected by changes and will use new technology introduced must have the time they need to train correctly. Managers may not assume employees will be able to adjust quickly or that they do not need extensive training because they have done their work for some time. Even the most established employees need to be truly trained how to use new technology if they use it correctly. Having extensive knowledge about the company is not enough in terms of something new. Each process and procedure changed by technology changes many people when people currently do their work.
